A Message from the Superintendent

Phoenix Community,

The George Gervin Prep Academy is a Charter School under the George Gervin Youth Center that is dedicated to serving children, their families, and the community at large. Since 1991, we have worked hard to provide innovatively designed and culturally sensitive services in San Antonio, and we branched out in 2012 with a prep academy in Phoenix.

Our primary aim is to assess and meet the individual needs of the whole person, specifically aimed at the needs of at-risk and disadvantaged youth. We also work with community members to provide affordable housing alternatives for senior citizens, transitional housing and training programs for young adults, and a variety of other community-based efforts.

I invite you to learn what GGYC and GGPA is all about and take advantage of our many programs. We appreciate the community support, which makes the continued success of youth in our area possible.
